Stanley Kiem, 1929-2020

Recommended Posts


I've just been informed that Stanley Kiem has passed away. He was a part-time neighbor of ours and sold his longtime Big Pine Key property in the last couple of years and had been living at his home on a large property not far from Fairchild. I just heard this news from someone who was very close with Stanley for years. Stanley had just celebrated his 91st birthday on 11 March. I believe he was the last of the IPS's founding members, and he was superintendent of Fairchild for many years. He was a very important figure in tropical horticulture and his death really marks the end of an era. I'm sure there are many South Florida members who can relate some of his many, many contributions.
